This cake is a 1"=1' scale model of an actual medieval style tent, or pavillion. The cake was 12" at the base, and constructed like a 3 tier cake, then iced smooth overtop. Buttercream with fondant accents. The heraldic banner is gumpaste, with a stand made of Pocky sticks. There are piped "ties" where the door is tied shut, but they're hard to see in this photo, as are the fondant tent stakes.
